12 Days of Campmas – Garrison’s Story

We’re halfway through the #12DaysofCampmas, are you loving the stories of our campers? On day 6 were speaking to Garrison. 

Garrison is 24 years old and has autism spectrum disorder. He first attended camp at age 10 and his fondest memories are with the counsellors that have left a lasting impression even 10 years later.  

“My first experience at Camp Squamish was so memorable [because of my] awesome Counsellor, Mike. Camp means talking to friends and opportunities for growth and fun.” 

Garrison has also attended our Compass program that helps youth with disabilities transition to adulthood. His mom, Violet, adds, “It’s been great seeing our son prosper and have so much fun. Easter Seals camps have dedicated professionals committed to making it an enjoyable experience.”  

Garrison’s sister Victoria had a chance to be a Registered Nurse at Camp Squamish one year and mom, Violet, added, “It was fabulous to see her commitment for Easter Seals that summer. She had so many wonderful memories!” 

Thank you Garrison, Violet and Victoria for being such a wonderful part of the Easter Seals Camp Family!
